The streams of a city are the natural and cultural heritage of that city Land use decisions and practices that do not give priority to nature in urbanization change the natural structure of the streams and cause the quality of life to decrease; and threatens urban health. It is still possible to find the traces of Dinlenç and Seyid Ahmed Creek among the streets, wich was located in the Kosuyolu District of Istanbul in the past. The streams, which were referred to as a healing spring water in the past, became unusable due to the construction in the surrounding area in the 2000s and became referred to as wastewater and were connected to sewage in time and most of them were taken under asphalt roads, only the names were connected to sewage in time and most of them were taken under asphalt roads, only the names were mentioned as street names.As long as the balance in nature is ignored and concreting continues; Will the call of nature to be seen be caught in our ears for the hidden parts of nature? In this project, the artist presents a process of experience in which two streams, whose name is alive with street names but whose existence is unknown, traces them in line with historical sources, collects clues about the streams and tries to reach “see” them.
